ADKINS ELEMENTARY: A SCHOOL WHERE EVERYONE BELONGSPosted by Melissa Pittillo at 3/1/2015
Adkins Elementary utilizes the pioneering work of Stan Davis as outlined in his book, Schools Where Everyone Belongs. Mr. Davis is a leading implementer of the “whole school” bullying prevention work of Dan Olweus. The premise of his evidence-based research is that a positive school experience is a fundamental factor that can make a difference for high-risk youth and reduce bullying. Furthermore, the focus is not on changing the individual, or the bully. Instead, it focuses on changing a system. This is more likely to lead to real and durable change.
